I Wrote this song during the Summer, an escape from the heaviness that was in the air.. It felt like a bit of a departure from other themes I usually cover in my songs. I recorded it in my home studio during lockdown and It almost felt like painting a blank canvas, starting with the piano melody and then building the instrumentation around that, weaving in the vocals and harmonies. I also filmed a video to accompany the track using lots of images and videos from my past that inspire me.
